Installation problems on a Mac seems to be a recurring question on  
this mailing list. Just as a reminder, besides CPAN, one of the  
easiest ways to install bioperl on a Mac is through fink. The  
instructions are available on the bioperl website here: http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/Getting_BioPerl#Mac_OS_X_using_fink 
, but are rather hidden.

Maybe http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/Installing_BioPerl can be edited to  
state Installing Bioperl for Unix (including Mac OS X)? I don't seem  
to have privileges to edit that page, so I'll leave that up to the team.

Also, the file PACKAGES contains a link about installation on Mac OS X  
that is *very* outdated. Can this be removed from the package, I think  
it only creates confusion?
